Just Got back from a week at Pirateland fished surf quite abit and State park pier once with the best fishing I'v had in the surf I am not like some of you that know it all about surf and Pier fishing as I am there only a few times a year but this was some of the best fishing I remember, caught Black Drum, Blues, Spot, Pinfish, whiting, Trout, Flounder both in surf and lakes in campground, Pompinos, most was caught on fresh local shrimp and cut bait, shrimp worked best for me kept a few for the freezer and released alot more that could have been eaten hated to come home today but had to. Bait was as thick in surf as I have ever seen it it is everywhere, good luck yall be back soon I hope:fishing::beer:

We'll give it one more shot tonight I suppose. Fished incoming this morning and only got two small black drum. We're using local shrimp. Something is taking the bait but not big enough to see anything on the rod. Possibly crabs or little pinfish. You using bottom rigs? I'm tying some up as we speak. See if the lack of hardware makes a difference.

Even with my own rigs, didn't get a bite. Pinfish were stripping the bait as soon as it hit bottom. So, I switch to a bobber and went after the little bastards. Dad and I had a contest to see who could catch the smallest one. Weird few days fishing. Didn't see much action anywhere around here. Glad to hear someone found some fish.

Time to move or soak big cut bait for blues, drum, and sharks.
